    Tiny insects, small and brown, Crept into a Southern town. In the Alabama sun They dug their way in one by one And basking in the noonday heat Began to search for food to eat. It won’t help to lock the doors— The Fire Ants have reached our shores. “They can’t harm the likes of us! ...

    A feat of architecture, Sculpted from raw elements. But no human voices Echo in its masterfully-crafted halls. Its chambers deserted, Its corridors eroding. It is a relic of a time now gone. Waves reach up the beach Toward mankind’s brief achievement. The first parapet collapses, Its h...

    A streak of light makes a bright mark on the noonday sky. Heads, scaled and feathered, look up from the forests and mountains. “Look!” cries one. “A shooting star!” “Make a wish!” implores another. The streak passes over the horizon and out of sight. There is a blazing flash And th...

    I’ve had enough Of this fish-eat-fish world. I’m heading up and out To the riverbanks, Testing out my fins And lungs. The new world Is greater than any of the Sharp-jawed, armored behemoths That still swim in the seas Could imagine. They ridiculed me for trying; Why waste effort ev...

    An inexplicable instant! From nothing, Everything. From chaos, Order. A blinding blaze No logic Can explain. No “what” Or “when” Can ever say “why” Or “how”. From beyond science There is magic, For an infinitesimal time. In a moment The...

    Twilight in front, above, below. This is the world. An endless world of dark. Little flecks of light here, there. Some of the light is mine—the bulb on my fin makes a little sphere of light around me. The others, the little fish, live in light spheres of their own. The world will never run out of ...

    The Architeuthis had managed to grow into a true monster. It hovered in twilight, seeing through the gloom of the unfathomable sea as though it were midday. Bulging eyes hunted for anything it could snatch. In the past, crabs and deep-water fish were enough to sustain it, but now it had grown so lar...

    The Dolphins’ Song The sea, the sea, the sea! Only out here are we free. With a flip of our tails We dive among whales! Forever so happy are we! The sea, the sea, the sea! Far from the land we did flee. For once we were men, But never again A life on the shore shall we see! The se...

    You wake up, and you’re filled with a fresh new feeling, One that has no words to explain, No description to its name, Just being. You know it, the moment you’re conscious, A fact, unquestionable. The sky is blue And you’re in love. It’s not a thing you can define, Young as you ar...

    Such wonderful creatures The past divulges. What secret do you hold, Tiny whorl of shell? How did you live In those antediluvian seas? What beasts you faced, What storms you braved! They come to my beach, Top hats and coattails, And look over the rocks at me In my plain dress. They s...

    There was a girl with beauty fair, But all ignored her hands and hair And watched her shining tear-filled eyes, Where diamonds oft would crystallize. Their quality was superbly fine, Greater than from any mine, And so the men did break her heart And her family tore itself apart All for the p...

    A pair of bright galaxies glow, Fringed by white superheated gases, With radiant stars within—blue, yellow, green—enclosing Vast black holes in the centers. I drift in between, Lost, No air to breathe In the void, Where rapid-spinning pulsars And lonely asteroids are the only company. ...

    Lying here upon the beach Just within the ocean's reach Lies the master of the sea, Resting for eternity. This is the snout of beast supreme Which led the way in its regime. Behind it followed massive bulk, A fearsome underwater hulk. Now it lies upon the shore, Lifeless here forevermore....

    Come is the time of the First Empire, Of blue-green microbe growth and rocky spire. No living thing stirs actively Within the gray and ancient sea. Come is the time of the Sea's Empire, Of exquisite fins and snail-shell spire. With new eyes their world they spy And one by one evolve or di...
